PD DAY CAMPS

PD Day Camp at the OHS is BARK! Oops, we mean BACK!

Join us on Feb. 18, 2022 for the first PD Day Camp of 2022. Space is limited, so don’t miss out and register today!

Note: Proof of full COVID-19 vaccination is required for all children attending camp.

PD day camps are a great opportunity for children to visit the OHS, learn about animal welfare and have fun while interacting with animals. Each camp offers a unique opportunity to learn and explore a variety of animal welfare topics.

PD day camps include the following activities, structured around meal times throughout the day:

  • Welcome to the OHS presentation
  • Behind-the-scenes tour of the shelter, including our Shirley Kearns Memorial Adoption Centre
  • Cat Gallery visit
  • Small animal visit
  • Volunteer dog visit and/or dog walk (weather permitting)
  • Guest speakers
  • Educational lessons
  • Animal-themed crafts
  • Animal-themed games
  • Quiet free-play time

All of our activities are geared towards teaching campers about animal care, handling and welfare. We try to have at least three 20-minute animal interactions every day, but that can sometimes vary depending on animal availability and behaviour. Our top priority is the well-being and safety of both the campers and our animals. We provide a fun, inclusive and safe learning environment for our campers, and one that is free of undue stress on the animals.
